Plaxico Burress faces driver's license suspension

There are a variety of reasons a driver in Greene County and other parts of the country, may find that he or she has lost his or her driver's license. Professional football player Plaxico Burress knows this all too well. The wide receiver for the Steeler's recently found his license suspended in relation to a personal injury lawsuit in which he was a defendant. The root of the personal injury lawsuit was a motor vehicle accident.

Burress was reportedly involved in a car accident in 2008 in which a woman suffered injuries to her head and back. As a result of those injuries the woman sought, and was awarded financial damages. In total Burress was ordered to pay the woman a $125,000, not including interest. He failed to provide the woman that money as ordered, which led to the license suspension.

Just as there are multiple ways in which a license may be suspended, so too are there multiple ways to get the license back. In Burress' case, which took place in Florida, there are apparently a couple of routes that can be explored. He has the option to challenge the action of the state's Department of Motor Vehicles. In the alternative, he could pay the woman the money as he was ordered.

Many individuals living in the state of New York rely upon their driver's license to make a living. Without being able to drive, it is possible that those individuals will be unable to get to their job. This can leave a person in dire straits. Because the loss of a license can negatively impact the life of the person who loses it, in most cases it is important to take the necessary steps to get the license back.
